Heart-hand syndrome is a heterogeneous group of congenital malformation characterized by congenital heart defects and limb malformations. The upper and/or the lower limbs may be affected in the same individual, however the severity often differs even in the same kindred. The commonest form is the Holt-Oram syndrome in which the carpal bones are usually affected; but the case of a 3-year-old boy who had umbilical hernia, ventricular septal defect and pulmonary arterial hypertension with a preaxial polydactyly as the only upper limb defect is reported.
